Artist Reception: Francisco Loza
Join us at AAC on Friday November 15 from 6 to 8pm as we celebrate Francisco Loza’s solo exhibition Visions of Culture, Dreams, and Nature. Originally from Mexico, Loza creates Arte de Estambre or pressed yarn art. The Arte de Estambre technique is associated with the Huichol people, an indigenous group that lives in the central mountainous region of Mexico. Loza learned the technique from Huichol artisans and continues to collaborate with Huichol artisan-shamans in Mexico and the United States. Many of his pieces depict Latin American and Mexican cultural traditions and community scenes, while others draw on more abstract and experimental influences and imagery.
